I know that UV index is a very important especially as summer approaches and everyone is planning to be outside a great deal. It would be nice for people to be able to search 'UV Index Maui' or any other location and get an instant UV Index answer, especially when skin cancer is on everyones minds.

We need another source. When I type my location on UVAwareness, I get:

"Hi, UV Awareness is no longer providing UV forecasts."

As for the Netherlands, the RIVM measures the UV index here.

It even has forecasts.

The US has SunWise:

But an international source would be better of course.

I'm looking into implementing this now. Will probably use sunwise for first version (US only), although ultimately I would like it to work world wide.
